Fickle, Fickle Band...

Today, was a good day. I wore new capris and a new top that I have been waiting to get into. SIZE 16! WOW, I don't know how long it has been since I've saw that magic number. Everybody noticed. I was on such a cloud all day.
One thing that has really taken some getting used to, is the fickleness (is that a word) of this band. I might can eat something perfectly fine one day and the next get stuck with two bites. Last night, as I cooked supper, I was so looking forward to eating some fresh turnips. It didn't happen. TWO BITES and I was stuck and in the bathroom. I keep telling myself that this is why I have the band, so that I can't enjoy myself that much and then in turn end up over eating. I ended up eating one of those cottage cheese doubles. Have yall found these? They are so good. Here lately,I have been eating them for breakfast and sometimes I eat them along with something else for lunch. Great protien sorce and only a hundred calories.

My husband works until 10:00 usually 3-4 times a week. Needless to say, this is one of those nights. I went to Cracker Barrel and Wal Mart with my sister but now I sit and wait.

The joys of living in the country, surrounded by woods and a field.....My exercise lately has consisted of running from the mouse in my bathroom. I finally named him Charlie because I didn't think I was going to be able to get rid of him. My 15 y-o daughter, who is a vegitarian, was so upset everytime she would think about me killing it. FINALLY,I was able to trap the sneaky little rodent on a glue board. To make my peta loving husband and my daughter happy, he took it to the field across the street and took it off the board. Can you believe that? I guess I am too cold hearted. I would have dropped the mouse and the board in the garbage. long as it is OUT of my bathroom, I am happy.
